Kitchen pass approved and I am signed up! Can someone arrange for there to be tailing reds present also?

I might be good, but I ain't THAT good!

Glad to see what looks like a good turnout!  :D  Let's get a few more signed up

Keeping an eye out for the weather. 

50% chance of lightning shown for Saturday as I type this.  I can get rained on all day, but have an aversion to getting electicuted.

Do we have a back-up plan?

I concur regarding lightning. Looks like 20% showers & thunder showers at  NWS.gov as of this morning.

I will bet that any storms will be in the PM. That said, let's kick around a backup plan at the board meeting tonight and I will post it here. If we do postpone/abort, I will call/email everyone Friday night. I will err on the side of being conservative. No redfish is worth someone getting hurt (unless it's Golden)  ;D !

You really believe the forecast?  40% chance of a SHARKNADO isn't anything to worry about.

BUT TALKING STUFF ABOUT GOLDEN WILL GET YOU A FACE FULL OF THIS!

If we end up having to postpone this Saturday due to storms, I will call everyone who has signed up Friday night or email them Saturday morning. If you don't hear from me, then we will be proceeding as planned. In the case of a postponement, we will reschedule for the next Saturday, the 24th.

Sunrise is at 0652.

360° Light would be required if we launch before then.

Meeting up at 0600 and getting ready to launch at 0652 sounds like a good plan.

Does anyone in the "Katy Navy" want to carpool down there?
